11.- Where is ALTUBEL's office and how do I get there?
Our offices are at Avenida Papa Luna 11 in Peñíscola, between the Papa Luna Hotel and Hosteria del Mar. The building is the tallest around (Torre Hirta Building). ALTUBEL is on the ground floor.
From the N-340 or AP-7, keep going until you get to the Plaza de la Constitución where you take the third exit and continue along Avenida de España to the roundabout at the end. The Tourist Office is straight ahead, the old town is on the right and Avenida Papa Luna is on the left.
If you use sat-nav, it may make a mistake when you enter the address (Avenida Papa Luna, 11) because the same address exists in a neighbouring town (Benicarló). Therefore, we recommend using these coordinates: Latitude: N 40.36571° Longitude: E 0.40329º

We also have a key collection service using lock boxes outside ALTUBEL's office that you can request when you make your booking.
